Carey: We're talking about a lot of data, in fact, thanks to another bit of information that Edward Snowden has revealed. This is some of the numbers we're talking about. This is from a program, an NSA program called Dishfire. This is what we’re finding out. More than 5 million missed call alerts, which are used to analyze a person's social network. That is some of the data the NSA is collecting. Details of 1.6 million border crossings a day. That is pulled from the network roaming alerts. And listen to this. More than 800,000 financial transactions through text to text payments are linking credit cards to phone users. That's the type of data that the NSA has been collecting. What does that tell you about the NSA? Sanchez: They have certainly adapted an attitude that they never saw a piece of data they didn't want to collect. It’s true, the attitude really does seem to be getting now it may come in handy for something down the road.
